Bestselling author Tish Cohen returns with a story of one woman's love for her child and the courage it gives her to face her biggest fear

As the owner of the upscale children's boutique Pretty Baby, Eleanor Sweet is surrounded by gleaming strollers, organic cotton onesies and roundbellied expectant mothers. It's a serene atmosphere of new beginnings--but for the graffiti-splattered record shop next door and Eleanor's fierce desire for a baby of her own. Her wish is finally granted in the form of Sylvie, an orphaned baby en route from earthquake-stricken Baja California. But when Eleanor's husband unexpectedly gets cold feet and backs out, her dream of adopting Sylvie is at risk.

Adopted herself, Eleanor has always been reluctant to search out her birth mother, afraid of what she might find. But she is determined to save the adoption and to give Sylvie the family she deserves. Eleanor hires Isabelle, a search angel, to find her birth mother. What Eleanor discovers about love and family isn't what she expects, but it gives her a new understanding of what it means to be a mother.

I really enjoyed this book about a young woman who hires a "Search Angel" to help her to find her birth mother.

She needs her birth mother's support in order to single parent a baby she wants to adopt.
